    Boneworks
    - eonden

    The next big VR game is coming to your closest simulation December 10. The only "I cant believe this is not Half Life VR" to feature a crowbar, unlike trailers shown by Alyx. Advanced physics and story to close another great year of VR games. Perform sweet moves and matrix like reloads in Boneworks!



    Due to high mobility in the game, it is not that recommended for newer VR players and should wait / train a bit in order to avoid possible nausea.


    Dragon Quest Builders 2
    - eonden

    Mix Minecraft, RPG progressions, and Dragon Quest designs and you will get this amazing piece of art. Move around the open world helping the people and fighting the darkness, or just play with 3 other friends online to enjoy the cute world and deadly enemies.


    Life is Strange 2 - Episode 5: Wolves
    - Uzzy

    Developed by DONTNOD Entertainment, the finale to Sean and Daniel Diaz's road trip is here. After tragic events, heartbreak and loss, the two brothers only have one barrier left standing between them and safety in Mexico. And it's a big one.

    So I finally played all of the episodes up to now last month, and I found there's quite a lot to enjoy about Life is Strange 2. It's a road trip buddy movie, focusing on the relationship between two brothers, dealing with the aftermath of a tragic event, deeply embedded in the political environment of today's America. There's a lot of heart, some excellent performances from the two main actors, and it's full of those wonderful quieter moments, that really get to the heart of the all too human characters the game is about. I'm excited for the ending, and to see where the Life is Strange franchise goes from here. Mr Diaz, tear down this wall.


    Vampire: The Masquerade - Coteries of New York - Uzzy

    From Draw Distance, Coteries of New York is a visual novel set in the World of Darkness, focusing on the bloodsucking fiends of New York City. You play as a newly embraced Kindred, a vampire, caught up in the power struggle that dominates the nights, the endless conflict between the traditional Camarilla and the rebellious Anarchs. Pick from one of three clans, and use your unique powers to gather allies, defeat enemies and maybe just survive.

    Since Paradox Interactive bought the rights to the World of Darkness, it's been clear that there would be new video games made in it, and the setting's so varied you could fit in all manner of games in it. My dream of a Crusader Kings 2 style Vampire Grand Strategy game is yet to emerge, but in the meantime we have this fascinating visual novel that is hopefully going to be good. It's quality will say a lot about how Paradox are treating the setting.

    Here's a better recommendation for it:
    And thank you for that! Added to the OP.


    Budget Cuts 2: Mission Insolvency
    - Devin

    Budget Cuts 2: Mission Insolvency is a stealth-action VR title, and followup to an early and popular full VR game. The teleportation in the game feels great, but it also allows you to preview an area before moving there, so you can avoid nasty surprises. Throwing knives in the first game felt great, and the sequel looks like it will add quite a few interesting new tools. Designed to be playable without playing the original, this is a great game for people just getting into VR.
